Blimey, it’s amazing what you come across on a lunch break in the centre of Sheffield! A bit of parkour makes for an interesting photo of the day! I have to admit, I kind of gate crashed a group of students filming and interviewing the parkour lads…but it was well worth it.
The men were from the Sheffield Parkour group and were fascinating to watch – so much energy, athleticism and ‘springyness’! If only I’d had my other lens (I was stuck with a 100mm prime today) and I didn’t have to dash back to work, I would have spent more time watching them use the city as their playground. I hope to be in touch with the group to arrange a day when I can spend more time catching the action!
With a wider angle lens you would have much more sense of the distance these guys were leaping! Trust me, it was thrilling!
